Google Now Offering Extra Storage Space

If you’re big into digital photography and movie editing, you know how much space those files can take up on your system. Speaking personally, I’m running out of space myself. Google has now began selling additional storage space starting at $0.25/GB. You can even get up to 16 TB if you really need it. Their pricing structure is as follows:

20 GB ($5.00 USD per year)
80 GB ($20.00 USD per year)
200 GB ($50.00 USD per year)
400 GB ($100.00 USD per year)
1 TB ($256.00 USD per year)
2 TB ($512.00 USD per year)
4 TB ($1,024.00 USD per year)
8 TB ($2,048.00 USD per year)
16 TB ($4,096.00 USD per year)

This may seem cheap, but considering that you can buy a 1 TB external USB hard drive for about $200 and have no yearly fees, I’d still prefer to buy my own drive.

Swiss Privacy Watchdog Not Happy with Google Street View

The Swiss government is taking Google to court over its Street View application, which as you probably know, photographs anything and everything to go along with Google Maps. The country’s privacy watchdog cites problems with the height of Google’s camera, which can peer over fences and hedges. Several European countries have taken issue with Street View in the past, ever since its launch in 2007. Switzerland wants Google to remove all pictures taken in the country and to cease taking any more pictures until a ruling is made.
